“Tsar and Great Prince of Moscow arrived incognito on the morning of August 8th last”.
Extract from the Church records of the Zaandam Evangelical Society.
While travelling in the Netherlands last years of the 17th century, Tsar Peter I was enchanted by the sound of the carillon. When he returned to Russia he brought several instruments with him and so began the Russian tradition of the carillon.No historical account is known which would provide us with a detailed description of music that Tsar Peter would have heard from the bell-tower of Peter and Paul Cathedral in St. Petersburg where the first Russian carillon was mounted. According to the fashion of the time it would have included well-known melodies, ecclesiastical music, military music (which Peter encouraged in every possible way), music played during court assemblées and popular (folk) music.
